Here are some facts about the Creating Wealth Podcast hosted by Jason Hartman. As the show count continues to climb, closing in on 300 (it sits at 276 at this moment in time), the past few years have seen well over one million downloads from several dozen countries. What began as a modest little project for Jason to take his unique real estate investing knowledge to the masses has gone global while we weren’t paying attention.
For the purposes of this post, we thought we reflect on the first 100 episodes. There are plenty of blog readers and podcast listeners who weren’t with us when the shows were first released and, too often, life gets so busy that it’s easy to stay focused on the new stuff and forget about the vast archive of entertainment, investing education, and just plain old fascinating conversation that has gone before. So take a moment and skim through the past episodes listed below. There’s a good chance you’ll find something worthwhile.

This has been a quick trip through the highlights of the first 100 episodes of the Creating Wealth Show. Hopefully there was something on the list that tripped your fancy and made you want to go back and learn something you didn’t know before. It’s exceedingly easy to tap into our past archive. Either follow this link to access previous shows on the JasonHartman.com website or head over to iTunes where you can grab them and plunk them down onto your iPod.
The whole point to this podcasting exercise is, yes, entertainment and some level of enlightenment, but more than anything Jason wants to share the miracle of income property investing, which has historically proven to be the best asset class you can buy. Don’t be led astray by the blather of Wall Street and their willing accomplices in the financial media. It’s simply not the best choice to make with your investment dollar any more, if it ever was.
